The only A-Z guide to structural steel design. Find a wealth of practical techniques for cost-effectively designing steel structures from buildings to bridges in "Structural Steel Designer's Handbook" by Roger L. Brockenbrough and Frederick S. Merritt. The Handbook's integrated approach gives you immediately useful information about: steel as a material - how it's fabricated and erected; how to analyze a structure to determine internal forces and moments from dead, live, and seismic loads; and how to make detailed design calculations to withstand those forces. This new third edition introduces you to the latest developments in seismic design, including more ductile connections, and high performance steels and offers an expanded treatment of welding. It helps you understand design requirements for hollow structural sections and for cold-formed steel members and explores numerous design examples. You get examples for both Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Allowable Stress Design (ASD).

Mirroring the latest developments in materials, methods, codes, and standards in building and bridge design, this is a one-of-a-kind, definitive reference for engineers.From the Back Cover:
AN INVALUABLE WORKING TOOL FOR STEEL DESIGN
If it has anything to do with the design of steel structures, you'll find it in the Structural Steel Designer's Handbook. The Fourth Edition of the one-of-a kind reference updates descriptions and examples to reflect the latest code provisions of AISC, AASHTO, and AISI, as well as current loadings published by ASCE and adopted by the IBC (International Building Code). The text provides this essential data -- and demonstrates its application.
This massive field manual for engineering professionals also includes the latest developments and trends in materials and methods. Handy tables, charts, formulas, and illustrations make decisions easier for both routine and exceptional structures.
Each of the 15 chapters is the work of outstanding engineering experts. From bolted and welded connections to member selection for building floors and roofs, from plate girders and trusses to cable-suspended bridges, this essential guide gives you examples of leading-edge steel design. Easy to follow and use, the Structural Steel Designer's Handbook is the tool of choice for both experienced engineers and those just launching their careers.
